Romania -Public sector pay raises conditional on growth -September 14, 2011

On 7 September, Prime Minister Emil Boc made it clear that public sector workers are unlikely to get any pay increase in 2012 unless the economy in that year will grow by at least 3.5%. Earlier cost-cutting measures effective in 2011 as to meet the demands of the €20 billion loan agreed in 2009 and to reduce public spending, included a 25% cut in public salaries, a pension reform, public sector layoffs and tax raises.
